Six Sentence Sunday






Elena is relieved to get clear of Faolan MacGailtry, the darkly dangerous man she met on the plane to Edinburgh. Then he forces his way into her car at the rental lot and orders her to drive. He claims someone was trying to kill her and he was just keeping her safe. She is relieved when they do, in fact, pull up in front of her hotel. What happens next is a surprise to them both.


The Six
He groaned, and Elena felt the heady power of a woman who knows she’s desired-- she was being devoured and had no will to stop him. His kisses claimed her, and she wanted him to keep kissing her until her last breath.

Breathing heavily, he pulled back slightly and nibbled on Elena’s lower lip before running kisses along her jaw to her neck. With his face buried in her hair, he whispered her name once more, “Elena.”

Then he pulled away from the embrace, opened the door, and walked away without a backward glance. Faolan disappeared into the mist as though he were nothing more than a figment of her imagination.

  6. He left without warning? Panting? Straining? How could he! Even if he is called Faolan (which is one of my all-time favourite names) he is a bad man ;)
